    you said goodbye
    I watched love fly
    don’t wanna cry
    you turned away
    what could I say?
    I thought you’d stay
    when the rain came pouring down
    all I heard was the sad sound
    of my heart beating slower still
    oh, my love, you left too soon
    when two souls seemed together and so true
    you said goodbye
    I watched love fly
    don’t wanna cry
    then came the pain
    alone again
    as the rain came pouring down
    all I heard was the sad sound
    of my heart beating slower still
    oh, my love, you left too soon
    when two souls seemed together and so true
    sad chords always make me cry
    these frozen teardrops in my eyes
    fill the ice pond where my hopes once lay
    I guess I’ll need to start again
    and in time forget the way I feel today
    and still the rain came pouring down
    but all I heard was the sad sound
    of my heart beating slower still
    oh, my love, you left too soon
    when two souls seemed together and so true
    if only you had turned around
    heard my heart beat a lonely sound
    out of rhythm and so out of tune
    I guess I’ll need to start again
    and in time forget the way I feel today
    I watched love fly
    sad chords goodbye

This song Sad Chords Goodbye brings tears to my eyes much like Nights in White Satin does to me.  

SAD CHORD GOODBYE a collaboration on a song by me and Nigel Spencer

http://www.reverbnation.com/open_graph/song/15604575?1336410755   IT IS MY EXTREME PLEASURE AND HONOR TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL SONG BY NIGEL SPENCER AND MYSELF.  I HAD THE HONOR TO BE ASKED TO WRITE THE LYRICS TO HIS BEAUTIFUL MUSIC. NIGEL WAS GREATLY INFLUENCED BY THE MUSIC OF THE MOODY BLUES AND IT SHOWS IN HIS OUTSTANDING MUSIC AND ARRANGEMENTS ON HIS SONGS…

The End? Today has been a super day for me!

Just as I imagined, the Mayans were wrong! Today has been a beautiful day here. The weather has been unseasonably warm and the sun has been shining bright all day. The earth couldn’t be more alive. The number 21 has always been a lucky number for me in so many ways. Three is my lucky number as well as seven and nine.  Seven time three is twenty one and Three time Three is nine.  I was born on the third day of June. I am Gemini with my moon in Taurus (which is ruled by the planet Venus) My Venus is in Cancer and my ascendant is Gemini and Aquarius is my MC.   What does all this matter,you might say?  Well in the scheme of the Universe, it means nothing but for me as an individual, I can only say that today is a lucky day for me and I have had a super day. So if the world were to end today then at least I had one more beautiful day on this earth to remember. But we all know it’s not the end but only the beginning. I believe that the best is yet to come. Age doesn’t matter to me anymore.  I am realizing my dreams in the Autumn of my life. It’s never to late to find your rainbows. My rainbow is a spectacular light show in the sky right now and gets brighter everyday!Image

You can’t see me (sad song)

You turned away

and were gone

taking with you my song

 

you couldn’t stay

‘Cause you’re not free

what does it matter

What does it matter to me

well it just means everything

everything to me

 

I hope you’d stay

but you’re not free

now there’s nothing left

nothing left for me

because you can’t see

No you just can’t see me

 

I wrote you a note

I know that you knew

that I had high hopes

but hopes can’t survive

without you near

If only you could hear

my heart cry

a love so true

like you really knew

 

Now I’m feeling blue,

Oh so blue, without you.

Oh do you ever give me a thought,

late at night.

Do you ever think of what could be,

If only you could stay,

Oh how beautiful it would be.

It would be like a dream come true,

Oh what a dream!

what a dream for me and you,

it would be like heaven,

But we can’t be in heaven now.

we’ll just have to wait somehow,

for heaven!november-sunset-on-the-gulf-2

Where Love has flown (c,) Copyright Oct.12,2012

Where love has flown

‘Golden and silver light flashing across the sky

Red sunsets and pale moon, love that never dies’

 

In the dark blue haze of twilight,

Shadows dancing across the sky!

Birds flying high, far from sight,

Images of him flash before my eyes!

 

In the dim light,

Birds are flying high,

Touching the sky.

Where have they gone?

Have they heard heavens song?

 

 

Dawn brings the golden sunlight shining.

Blue birds singing nearby me,

As I gaze in the clear blue skies,

A vision of him again flashes,

Before my eyes!

Where has he gone?

Has he heard heavens song?

 

Memories of love from days of past,

Love meant to last.

Where has love flown?

Has it heard heaven’s song?

 THE DAY THE MUSIC SAVED MY LIFE (c.) Copyright 2010

(dedicated to the moody blues)

Standing in the shadows of darkness,

Like the poor souls who are deaf and blind,

I crept into the darkness that day,

Fingertips leading the way!

There is light everywhere,

Though I see nothing!

There is music and laughter all around,

But I don’t hear a sound!

Searching for the light,

I stumble in fright.

Unable to feel my way,

Out of the dark I fall,

For I felt nothing at all!

Out of nowhere,

Music appeared.

The veil was lifting once again,

As I started to listen.

My heart sang for joy!

The light was slowly peeking,

Through the dark shade,

As my emptiness started to fade.

Eyes wide open, I could now see,

My ears beheld a symphony!

My heart danced in rhythm,

My limbs no longer numb,

For I could feel again!

To celestial music, I now listen!

Sorrow flew away,

And was gone,

From the miracle of song.

No more sorrow or strife,

The Day the Music saved my Life!
